The Art of Lent – Day 26, Thursday

They share freely and give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.
They will have influence and honor.

Psalm 112:9 NLT

When you have time, read this whole Psalm (It’s only 10 verses – you can do it!). I count at least four references to the longevity of those who obey God – two of those say our good deeds will last forever. We know God prepared us for good works (Ephesians 2:10), and he promises us that obedience is eternal! Mankind has long tried to achieve eternal glory by recording their feats in paintings, carvings, hieroglyphs, epic poems, and more. Imagine your good deeds as a panel of hieroglyphs, and sketch several of them as a record of God’s faithfulness.
